PowerColor PCS+ Radeon HD 7870 won't let me use 3rd monitor.

Discussion created by technerd22 on Feb 1, 2020

I wanted to setup a 3rd monitor, so I plugged in a small RCA TV I had, I know that both the monitor and cable works. It wasn't working. I decided to reinstall the drivers, and when I uninstalled the drivers, my VGA monitor with a DVI adapter went off, and my DVI monitor and the RCA TV acted like they were the same monitor, despite being different res. But when I reinstalled the drivers, the TV went back to no signal and the VGA-DVI adapter monitor came back on. When I went in the Windows settings, it was detecting the TV, but it was stuck on disconnect this display and I was unable to change it. If anyone could help, that would be great, here are the specs:

MSI P55A-G55

8GB G.SKILL DDR3

Intel Core i5-750

AMD (duh) PowerColor PCS+ Radeon HD 7870

2TB 7200RPM HDD (main drive)

500GB 7200RPM HDD (second drive)

Dell S199WFP - DVI-D

Acer X193W - VGA

RCA TV (dont know what model) - HDMI (the one I'm having issues with)

Also, probably should mention this, when I turn on the computer, I get the MSI logo on the TV, but when Windows boots, that's when it goes to No Signal.
